a victim of government intimidation and a run away prosecutor. >> while there's no law or set of laws that can prevent every sinceless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent he every tragedy, every act of evil, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot, that was president obama rolling out the plan to curb gun violence and the president outlined 23 executive actions, including more steps to make more federal data available from background checks and increased access to mental health services and he called on congress to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban and prohibit high capacity gun magazines that can hold more than ten rounds. so, what's likely to get passed and what difference will it make? let's ask wall street journal columnist and political he editor and washington columnist kim strassel. >> has a hypothetical, let's assume that everything the president is proposing becomes l
, law was less than that. that was a classic compromise that he did not get. another compromise was his promise to repeal the bush tax cuts for higher income. his goal was couples making more than 200th $50,000 or couples making $200,000 and the fiscal cliff deal did not achieve that. we rented that a compromise. let's go to fort lauderdale,. caller: with respect to not keeping a promise for negotiations with a health kicce -- i think that a somewhat wrong. i have watched the other representatives of congress on tv every day negotiating and debating and putting their facts together. the final decision between nancy pelosi and the head of the sun -- of the senate when they finally came out with exactly what the bill would be -- it was done behind closed doors. the putting together of the bills, people putting in their amendments, was actually done on cspan every day and i watched that. secondly, with respect to these people calling about taking away guns. there is nothing about taking away people's guns. if they go through a background check, they don't need to have a gun. the second ame
-bye, andy. the o'reilly factor is on tonight. >> health reform law becomes legs in america. >> lower cost for families and for businesses and for the federal government. >> not true, mr. president. the government accountability office says not only will obama care cost the government a lot of money the enormous federal spending will eventually collapse the entire u.s. economy. this could be our last warning. lou dobbs will analyze. >> this is the president, i think, who has drunk the kool-aid. he is feeling right now high on his own power. is that true? is president obama becoming so rigid that he is unable to governor? carl rove has some thoughts. >> did you feel about bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> did you feel in any way that you were cheating? >> no. >> lance armstrong pretty much admitting he is a sociopath. is he really sorry for his doping and lying? gutfeld and mcguirk on that. >> bill: caution, you are to enter the no spin zone. the from south florida. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly reporting tonight from south florida. thanks for watching us. are we
a reality. because while there is no law or set of laws that prevent every senseless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent every tragedy, every act of evil, if there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there is even one life that can be saved, we have an obligation to try. >> texas congressman steve stockman made news. he said he would take any means necessary to stop the president from bypassing congress even arcticles for impeoplement. congressman stockman. you would do whatever it takes. what kinds of actions you take to reverse the executive orders. >> mike, right now what we did, we contacted dr. paul, a senator in up in the senate and we are co-sponsoring legislation to and perform stopping the bills which are executive orders that act like bills and in order to make sure he doesn't overstep his authority. we are introducing legislation as we speak. we'll draft and introduce it in the coming weeks. >> the word impeachment came up. is that a threat? >> we have a lot of option and tools and as a congressman you can impeach someb
in the days and weeks after the inauguration to sell their proposal for stiffer gun laws and gun safety package. it's a strategy they feel has been successful in the past. they used it during the fiscal cliff fight, the student loan debate and they feel it's a way to rally the american public on their side and to pressure congress to act. it has been successful in the past, will it be in this instance? of course, that is a big question mark. this is a very controversial issue. but the polls show that the president has the majority of america on his side. the wall street journal poll shows that americans favor stiffer gun laws so that is his plan moving forward. >> thanks to you, dave, before you leave, picking up on what kristin said there. the president's gun proposal here, there are a lot of folks who have surmised that the president has asked for things that politically he knows he will not be able to get, especially the assault weapon's ban, is that what the white house strategy is? >> they cannot say they are giving up on the assault weapon's ban, but i think they are looking and a
and ultimately very bloody standoff between law enforcement and this very well-armed group of people. it was a 50-day standoff in waco that ended in a massive fire and many, many fatalities. >> good evening. it appears tonight that david koresh, who believed that he was the son of god, perished today in a setting that closely resembled hell. and apparently, he took more than 85 of his followers with him, including it's estimated 17 children. >> what happened at waco was an absolute nightmare. but on parts of the very far right, on the anti-government far right fringe, it was seen not just as a nightmare but as a conspiracy, as a government conspiracy, as something that was ginned up and in fact faked by the government to create a big enough, scary enough situation that it would justify taking away everyone's guns. a freshman republican congressman from texas at the time, a congressman named steve stockman, even wrote in an article in "guns & ammo" magazine that waco was a government execution. he said, "waco was supposed to be a way for the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and the clinton

and work more together to pass the laws that need to be passed. that's all i have to say. host:jody cantor has a lengthy story of this morning on the front page of " the new york times." steve is joining us from with -- ridgway, pa., independent line, good morning. caller: one thing i have noticed since president obama has been president is the continual -- a concerted effort to compare himself to president lincoln, a first in his talking about the book that he was reading -- i cannot remember the title of it -- >> king of rivals? caller: now he is taking the inauguration on the lincoln bauble. there is an idea that some callers have made that this president has faced worst consequences or worse situations than previous presidents i think is somewhat absurd. the fact that he is half-black, there is nothing to it. he is the president of united states and is supposed to be president of everybody. unfortunately, i have lost confidence in the politicians in washington, d.c. and i think the people of the united states should continually boat these people out of office on a regular basis until t
to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. >> collin, what's your reading on what he did today? do enough? >> we finally have leadership from the white house. it's great to see a comprehensive approach to the gun violence. the vice president promised me personally we're going to get something done about this. it was a great day. >> when you hear it, what do you see that works? what do you see that will stop people who are mentally unstable or emotionally unstable or criminally intent from getting guns to use in these spray shootings is what we're really concerned with right now. >> that's the biggest way to impact that is at the point of sale and requiring a background check on all gun sales. they realize that background checks don't take guns from law-abiding people. they pass those every time. but those with a felony conviction or a diagnosed mental illness -- >> where's the nra on back
a couple of former governors, harvard law professor, engineer, to name a few. while they have each accomplished so much already, their greatest achievements are still ahead of them. i know they'll look back with satisfaction at the work we do together in the united states senate. our caucus and our country faces immense challenges. as we go through tests and trials, this diverse group in the senate will be united by a single objective, to fight for fairness and balance on behalf of the middle class. we're going to continue to work on old rules -- excuse me, madam president. we'll continue to work with, i will with the republican leader on a package of reforms that i hope we can agree on. as i've said before, if we don't agree, then we're going to do something as a democratic caucus alone. i do remain cautiously optimistic we'll be able to move forward on a bipartisan basis. i hope we can do that. if we do that -- and i'll have more to say about that if in fact we can do that -- we're not going to get everything we want. the republicans aren't going to get everything they want. but
transportation planning, law-enforcement planning, investments, because we want to know not only what is happening one year from now but 90 days from now. it is not there because we have got to get our fiscal house in order in washington, d.c., and we are excited about it. >> the mayor of columbia, south carolina, a democrat, and the vice president of the u.s. conference of mayors. gentlemen, thank you for being here. guest: thank you. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] >> next, we will show you presidential inauguration speeches. in 1981, ronald reagan was nominated as the 40th president. the former california governor won the election against the incumbent, and at issue was the iran contra crisis, where americans were held for over 400 days after a group of islamic militants and students took over the embassy. as he was giving his inauguration address, the militants were being released. this is about 25 minutes. [applause] >> governor, are you prepared to take the constitutional oath? >> i am. >> raise you
,000 and 2500 law enforcement officers from all over the country. as far out as california, as far south as florida. they're brought here, they volunteer and then they are deputized as united states marshals. for the period of the inauguration. they have police powers, in the city, they also have arrest powersth and they're basically going to be doing crowd control and such. so i, tweeted out a picture of this, a sea of police, that's just the beginning of it you also have something like 6,000 national guards. you have 4,000 from the d.c. police department and you have the unseen as you were talking about a minute ago. >> we talk about stuff being implemented. a lot of stuff they're prepared for just in case. >> absolutely. there's tons of it. obviously there are cameras all over the place, they're watching us and we're watching them and they're watching television. at an undisclosed location there are all sorts of law enforcement agencies, a veritable alphabet soup of organizations watching monitors. waiting for something to jump on. huge crowds expected here, but nothing like last time
was telling them that there's a difference between a speech in front of a law school class and a campaign speech. he was this not getting that. he spent a lot of time in black churches listening to preachers. that really influenced his speaking style. the next time heard him after that was in 2004 at the heartland cafe and my jaw dropped. >> he worked for her. he wanted to go with her. >> she graduated from law school before he had. >> there is the vice president. san >> [applause] >> [music] >> [inaudible] >>the president of the united staes and mrs. obama. >> [applause] >> [applasuuse] >> [inaudible] >> ladies and gentleman please take your seats. >> mr. president mr. vice president, honored guests. we are pleased to welcome you to today's inaugural luncheon. and this historic room we look around at the 35 statues representing men and women. i feel obligated to know that she was born in rochester n.y.. thankfully she will soon have company when rosa parks completes her journey. we look around and a member of the men and women who helped define our nation. they like us face o
control, for parking, for what have you. and we have about 2,000 individuals from law enforcement agencies, all over of this side of the united states. they try to get people to come close because they can drive in. so those are the numbers. now, what are they going to be doing? certainly trying to keep the crowd safe. but it's also important to say the authorities here are expecting the crowd to be about one-third to one-half the size of the crowd when president obama was naug rainaugurated th time. the trick is to try to stay invisible and not make it look like a police state. we know both at the republican and democratic national conventions there were so many security personnel, they kind of overwhelmed the place and it was perhaps a little too much, not just for the locals but also for the national audience. >> joe johns, thanks very much. >> thank you so much, joe. it's not just inauguration weekend, it's also the martin luther king holiday weekend. to mark that, thousands of people are taking part in a national day of service today. including the first family, obamas helped fix up a
are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then sure lit love we commit to one another must be equally as well. >> reporter: foreign policy was noticeably absent from his address though he harolded a decade of war, touting a recovering economy and acknowledged the lessons still ahead. >> the commitments we make to each other, these things do not sap our nation. they strengthen us. >> reporter: he gave mitt romney this line. >> they do not make us a nation of tears. ♪ la >> reporter: filling the air what patriotism, kelly clarkson and beyonce. ♪ the brave there was a poem and prayers. as he left the west front of the capitol, a nostalgic turned back toward the lincoln memorial. >> i want to take a look out one more time. >> now there were shades of the campaign that the president winning out, success can't mean that a few people are making it and a growing number are barely scratching by. the president acknowledging that bipartisan -- or the lack of bipartisanship here in washington but noted that everyone needs to work together for the good of the cou
: coming up, he was once in charge of enforcing the strictest gun laws in the country. so why does our next guest say the president's gun plan might fuelly help criminals? >> steve: that's right. then does this scene look familiar? is this victoria secret super model trying out to be the next pond girl? >> gretchen: i just bought that swim suit. seriously. the boys use capital one venture miles for their annual football trip. that's double miles you can actually use. tragically, their ddy got sacked by blackouts. but it's our tradition! that's roughing the card holder. but with the capital one venture card you get double miles you can actually use. [ cheering ] any flight, anytime. the scoreboard doesn't lie. what's in your wallet? hut! i have me on my fantasy team. but for most of us it represents something more. it's the time of year that we have all waited for. when we sit on the edge of our seats for four quarters. it represents players reaching a childhood dream. the biggest stage there is in sports. a time when legacies are made. where a magical play can happen every snap, and you rem
, the president signed into law. >> there will be no more tax-funded bailouts. period. >> years of spending added up and the debt ceiling talks of 2011 led to a budget standoff between democrats and republicans who had taken back control of the house in the mid-terms. >> is there a risk that the united states could lose its triple-a credit rating, yes or no? >> no risk of that. >> no risk. >> the debt ceiling was raised in august, the political fight and the spotlight on the count row's deficit and debt problems led s&p to downgrade the u.s. credit rating for the first time in history. >> geithner steered the major economic moves in the first term, now he's stepping down at treasury. the pick to replace him is jack lew, who has established a close relationship with the president. he is know chummy with the republicans on the hill after the debt ceiling negotiation. for that reason and other, his looming confirmation hearing could be bumpy. but if confirmed, lew will likely be dealing with the top issue in this second term, how to get the economy moving and addressing the count re's long-term fisc
in the last four years. and his mother in law. this is the first president in more than a generation who has his mother-in-law living at the white house. good or bad, he has his mother-in-law living at the white house. that should be, at some levels, admired. it is what it is. she is very instrumental in raising the girls and keeping them grounded. the major folks are in place. the remaining members of the president's family, including his daughter and mother in law will establish their seats. these girls will be 15 and 18 years old for years from now. they will have spent a majority of their formative years in the white house. they have grown to be remarkable young ladies and under the duress and the pressure in the public eye, they have certainly been a credit to this president. peter barnes, i am wondering, as these kids taken their dad and the overtures that he will make to lead this nation and united, it is a very different tone now than it was four years ago. peter: that is right neil. right now, in the latest fox news poll he is up 48%. when he was first elected, he was about 65%. the
years, it's time to write about hit in the books of law. the job of the president-- and obama has done this magnificently-- to make america feel its greatness, its ideals to arouse our idealism. it's also the job of a president to write it in the books of law, to get actual legislation passed. that's what a nation is governed by and the second term in my mind is going to hinge on what is written in the books of law. >> rose: two things, one is that there's no question that l.b.j. is the most formidable political human figure i've ever met and if we had only known that person that bob caro knows through his research that i was lucky enough to know when i was 24 years old i think the country would have been felt differently there was one moment that he spoke to a bunch of reporters and he was himself and he never did that again. the teleprompter was a girdle on him. to go back to what bob woodward said, we can't forget that the republicans have attacked the democrats and obama even more fiercely than he's attacked them so it's not like he's out there saying these mean things about them.
the law. >> tonight an unprecedented gathering on business, politics on both sides of the gun debate. dan rather, mark cuban, grover norquist, a texas gun owner who survived a mass shooting and a couple who stopped a thief with a gun of their own. how would you grade the president for his first four years and what da you want to see in the next four? this is "piers morgan tonight." [ applause ] good evening. our town hall is going in a few minutes but we begin with breaking news on another school shooting. this texas three were wounded and two in custody after a shoot-out that apparently resulted from an altercation at the north harris campus at lone star college. joining us is not an eyewitness, he's an emt student who treated two people who were bleeding. he found out later that one of them was a suspected shooter. a very dramatic day, obviously, at the college today. tell me exactly what happened. >> well, i actually was coming out of class, and i had knew that there was a lot of commotion going on, but i wasn't really sure what it was. i asked a couple students and they said there wer
prominently, a bushmaster, like the one used in the newtown massacre. there was also a circle of uniformed law enforcement officers and gun violence victims. there was rolled out with pomp and circumstance, but did she get the message right? she, herself, admits that getting this passed will not be easy. >> if anyone asks today, can you win this? the answer is, we don't know. it's so uphill. >> uphill is right. the fact of the matter is that gun violence from assault weapons is estimated the to be between 2% and 8% of the gun crime in this country. so, is this how democrats should be spending their time? or are they overreaching and risking chances for success? roland martin joins me along with with raham slon. can this bill pass? >> look, you don't know until you actually take the effort. i think it's crazy when we say things such as, well, it's a small piece. it sort of reminds me of the federal budget, erin, when we say, well, it's only a drop in the bucket. well, every little bit helps. i don't have a problem if we have an impact on guns that could affect 2 to 8%. well, then we can deal wi
